Don’t be tardy for this party! Kim Zolciak-Biermann is launching her very own skincare collection, and it’s chock-full of the products she uses to tone, tan and protect her face and body.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta alumna, 38, is open about getting injections (whether on her face or her butt), but she also relies on a consistent routine to maintain a flawless complexion. “I’ve always been obsessed with skincare. It’s like I have a CVS in my house,” she exclusively tells Us. “When we travel, I have an entire suitcase just for my beauty products.”
Although Zolciak-Biermann had played with the idea of launching her own line for years, a mini-stroke last September gave her the push she needed. “It was like someone lit a fire under my ass,” the mom of six says. “I realized I needed to do everything I wanted to do, so I made the time.”
Over the past year, she teamed up with Tim Sharif, cofounder of Zolciak-Biermann’s go-to shake company, 310 Nutrition, to develop Kashmere, a play on both her 3-year-old son Kash Kade’s name and the luxurious fabric. “I started Kashmere from the ground up,” Zolciak-Biermann, who married Kroy Biermann in 2011, tells Us. “I spent the time and invested the money and have been involved in every part of the process. I’ve really put my heart and soul into it.”
Zolciak-Biermann teased the 10-piece line back in May at her birthday party, and it officially goes on sale August 15. In addition to a body scrub, cellulite cream and self-tanner, Kashmere includes the Luxurious Skin Toning Oil ($59) that was inspired by a DIY moisturizer Zolciak-Biermann used to make in her kitchen. “While I was pregnant with the twins, I was terrified of getting stretch marks, and even though they are hereditary, moisturizing helps,” she tells Us. “So I was always at the stove melting down and mixing oils, and I vowed one day I would sell it.” But since her recipe left oil spots on her clothes, she relied on the experts to improve upon it. “I hired an amazing team of chemists, and they took my recipe and tweaked the formula to make it a dry oil,” she says. “Now it dries within minutes and leaves you feeling silky and moisturized.”
Until the full collection is available, customers can pre-order select products now: Luxurious Skin Toning Oil, Firming Lotion ($70), Sunless Tanning Lotion ($50), and the Silken Body Polish ($39). All of the products are also available in the Skin Tight Body-Boosting Bundle ($143).
And Zolciak-Biermann is not planning on stopping with skin care. “I always put on like six different lipsticks to get the color and consistency I want,” she tells Us. “So I want to continue to create products that I’ve been making myself all these years and can help simplify life for people.”
